call today from the international energy agency. fueling that energy renaissance: a boost in oil and shale gas because of new technologies like fracking. the group also expects the u.s. will be a net exporter by 2030, meaning we'll sell more oil than we bring in. right now the u.s. imports 20% of its energy needs. >> susie: so our word on the street tonight is "oil". joining us, gregg greenberg, reporter at the street.com. hey, gregg, i know you have been talking to a lot of oil experts today. it's kind of hard to imagine the u.s. after all these years being energy independent. what were they telling new what did you hear? look, scsi, the trend is certainly favorable. it's nice to hear we are producing more energy here in america and much greater than the reverse but i have to take reports like this with a grigg grain of salt. we have been hearing about peak energy for a long time, hearing about saudi arabia's reserves for a long time and you have to take it with a haley dose of skepticism, good news then again you have to be a little bit keptic. >> susie: all right, but if you d
by financial and energy groups. now, after the closing bell, the focus was on cicso systems. the internet gear maker reported its quarterly results late today. and those results were two cents better than estimates. net sales were up from last year, too, and higher than expected. c-s-c-o has been undergoing a restructuring for the past year, managing uncertain demand for its telecommunications equipment's pinched profit margins. the stock was flat before tonight's earnings report. shares were up about 4% in extended hours trading. now, as erika reported earlier, home depot's strong third quarter earnings and optimistic outlook really helped drive buying interest. today's 3.6% rally came on more than double its usual volume, and takes the stock to its highest price since 1999. but the buyi interest did not extend to home depot's main rival, lowe's. lowe's shares were essentially ghchanged evebu lihesy r tlie aavangthraveol slightly heavier than average. home depot wasn't alone in reporting strong earnings. dick's sporting goods boosted full-year outlook after a better than expected quarter.an s
. to be in commander in wartime is one of the most difficult things. you need great intellectual energy and physical energy. petraeus is the first guy since world war ii the public has known. the irony, it to me -- one of the surprises to me in writing this book is the people we lionize, the soldiers of world war ii, they were the people became the generals of vietnam. the we rightly demonized. they're the same men. the difference is, world war ii, there was accountability. in world war ii, success was rewarded, the failure was punished. nobody knows -- first american commander in the african european in the army in world war ii. he was fired. a bunch of other generals were fired. they were replaced by names -- in 1940, dwight eisenhower was lieutenant-colonel on the west coast. george marshall picked him out and said that is the type of guy i need and began promoting these guys. we do not have leadership these days. instead, we have a parade of generals go into iraq. mediocrity, not doing much. coming home feeling entitled to a promotion. that is what has happened to the military over the last 50 y
energy prices. without food and energy, core inflation was up two tenths of a perce.re wan troll s eet, the dow fell 28.5 points, the nasdaq was down almost ten, and the s&p 500 dropped two. if you want to know how the economy is faring, it pays to keep an eye on walmart. after all, it has over 10,000 stores across the globe, selling more than $1 billion worth of stuff every day. it earned $1.08 per share in the third quarter, a penny more than estimates, and up 11% from last year. but revenues were a little shy of forecast, and walmart's outlook for this quarter was less than anticipated. compare that to rival target's quarterly earnings-- four cents better than expectations at 81 cents a share and a holiday outlook that didn't disappoint. erika miller reports on what the results say about all-important the holiday season. >> reporter: $3.6 billion. that almost unthinkable number is what walmart earned in the third quarter alone. it works out to about $40 million in profits a day. to wall street analysts, it's proof the company's turnaround strategy is working. >> what walmart does so
image. so actually the energy of creation went up, rather than down. >> reporter: what do you mean when you write about the narcissus effect with michelangelo's ceiling? >> well if you look at the mo caravaggio picture, when narcissus looks in the water and only sfas s hice. and the sentence i wrote is that the male of the species saw only himself when he looked in the cosmic pool of ultimate mystery. >> reporter: more traditional christian views have not represented god in the female form, but in pastor ortberg's view, women have been an important and positive part of god's message. >> oh, i think it's unquestionably a point worth noting. sometimes in the scripture there are feminine analogies used. jesus says at one point, "you know how often i would have gathered you like a mother hen gathers her chicks but you would not let me." so i think one of the hard things is, because in the bible we talk about god as father, people can think about god as masculine the way that a human being is masculine. >> reporter: goodbody, now the curator of artintelligence.com, sees a modern resonance fo
are missing and about a dozen are injured after an explosion today on a black elk energy oil and gas platform, according to the u.s. coast guard. a fire started when sparks from a torch hit a storage tank on the platform. the platform is located in shallow water about 25 miles off the coast of grand isle louisiana. the houston-based company says about 16 barrels of oil leaked and that it was not producing oil or gas when the fire started. last month black elk announce plans to start drilling about 20 new wells in the gulf of mexico. >> susie: j.p. morgan and credit suisse will pay more than $400 million combined to settle claims stemming from mortgage bonds gone bad. the securities and exchange commission accused the two of mis-leading investors in bonds backed by home mortgages. j.p. morgan will pay $297 million. credit suisse's fine is $120 million. neither bank admits nor denies the claims. most of the allegations centered around the banks keeping cash they were paid by mortgage originators when loans went bad, instead of passing those payments along to investors in the mortgages. >> tom:
to do both. yes, we need these market incentives on the one hand to encourage renewable energy. but we also need a government that's willing to say no. no, you can't mine the alberta tar sands and burn enough carbon that you will have game over for the climate as james hansen has said. >> but i'm one of those who is the other end of the corporation. i mean, we had a crisis in new york the last two weeks. we couldn't get gasoline for the indispensable vehicles that get us to work, get us to the supermarket, get us to our sick friends or neighbors. i mean, the point i'm trying to make is we are all the fossil fuel industry, are we not? naomi klein: you know, we often hear that. we often hear that we're all equally responsible for climate change. and that it's just the rules of supply and demand. >> i have two cars. i keep them filled with gasoline. >> i think the question is if there was a fantastic public transit system that really made it easy for you to get to where you wanted to go, would you drive less? i don't know about you, but i certainly would. >> i mean, i use the subways all
. but there are a lot of unknowns. when you do theatre. and the energy of what it is you are in, you don't know where it can go. if someone can yell something out or you know... i remember one time we were doing something and would you notice someone in the front row, like there was a whole story. you were probably brought here by a secretary. >> rose: some lady in the front row just went "oh, gosh." >> what did she say. >> which moment was t i can't remember but i said something and she was like oh god, you could see where this is going and was like oh god. >> or sometimes the father gets a hiss like if he says something to me. >> rose: does it bother you at all? >> it's sort of an indication of where they're at, you know, that flock of birds out there. >> yeah. >> somehow becomes of one mind, you know. >> the mob mentality. >> rose: in the world that we live in now, there's all kinds of blogs and if you do what i do and are on conversation every-- television every day, morning, noon and night, you get a lot of people. and someone said to me so wisely once they said not about me, i was looking at th
, actually. even though it was near the end, it's sort of took on the a whole if serial energy. he could feel a lift in yourself. and in the auditorium. however, that had been the case and some of the other numbers that preceded it. some of the numbers had real high points. but that, i was just flying. >> next month, you, robert plant, and john paul jones will be given the kennedy center award for your contributions to american culture. that is quite an accolade. how does that feel? >> well, it is a terrific honor, isn't it? the fact is that all three, all four of us were so influenced by american music, and to me, the music that i was hearing in the 1950's over here, whatever was kicking off the rock and roll movement over here in the 1950's would not have existed without american music, really. we all owe a tremendous debt to it, really, this whole movement, the people, the rest of it. american music. >> when you get the kennedy center medal in december, you'll be introduced to president obama. >> yes. >> if you have a little chat with him about american music, how will that go? >> uh, i di
's got so much going on i can concentrate on my own -- people were giving him energy. now the players go hang on a minute. he's got enough to deal with. i know his swing is this and that and he can't play like he used to. i'll use that 10% of energy i was worrying about him where he was in the lead. i worry about myself now. and these youngsters have, like -- have got the freedom too go and play and they've had the opportunity to beat tiger and they more than likely will keep it. >> rose: if you were 21 today and in good as health as you've ever been, whose swing would you like to have? >> well, the best -- i mean, adams god. >> rose: what makes adam scott -- >> well, again, back to fundamentals. great grip, great posture, great takeaway, great body movement. the kids now have this wonderful -- we use track man. >> rose: kids like people like adam scott, rory mcelroy. >> well, i'd go to 15. these kids now have the knowledge where we did -- we were the pioneers of this knowledge. we didn't know how hard to train could you lift weights to train, what could we eat on the golf course? the fi
control of many events, many characters and the energy in the book is deployed with genius. >> rose: you are not unaware to use the double negatives other have before have adapted it to movies and plays, what is the challenge for you? how did you approach this? >> well, in fact, there have been, as you know, a dozen anna kareninas, probably. my approach was to just see what was for me central, which was love in infinite variety but certainly several manifestations, provide different threads through the book, there are choices to be made among the characters of lesson and kiki. >> there is a lot of stuff going on in the book about tolstoy's preoccupation with agriculture, with the philosophy of life and so on, and i just kept picking up on love, love between brothers, love between lovers, love between mother and child, and tried to make a point of that, really, which in a way simplified my task and there was less missing from such a big novel as you might suppose in the movie. >> rose: so nertsz you feel like you really got the essence of that, if your focus is on the love you have got t
, members of the house energy and commerce committee had their first chance to question the f.d.a. lawmakers wanted to know how the f.d.a. knew of problems at the pharmacy as early as 2002 but took no action. the agency later issued a warning letter in 2006 but again no tougher action was taken, either. >> after a tragedy like this, the first question we all ask is: could this have been prevented? after an examination of the documents produced by the massachusetts board of pharmacy and the f.d.a., the answer here appears to be yes. >> reporter: some experts contend the f.d.a. already has the authority to regulate large compounding pharmacies. but in her first public remarks today, f.d.a. commissioner dr. peggy hamburg said her agency needs more power. dr. hamburg proposed a two-tier system where smaller, more traditional pharmacies are regulated by the state. larger pharmacies of all kinds would be overseen by the f.d.a. >> the fact that we have unclear, limited and contested authorities and ambiguities in the law, and a crazy quilt of legal authority has required us to be very reactive, res
can- - we spend, you know, every bit of our energy to finding solutions. >> reporter: eva bennick is still hoping to hear from fema. >> and so you have this sort of information vacuum and i thought it was very interesting that on the third day, the daily news was able to deliver my newspaper to my front porch, but fema can't find me. amazing. >> reporter: while she waits, the volunteers from occupy sandy are filling the gap. >> you know, it could be close to 10,000 people that have been, you know, martialed as individuals and as autonomous individuals and groups, but under one sort of, like, organizational structure so that they, we could, you know, meet some of those needs that were arising after the storm. >> reporter: the area is getting more attention today. the president took a helicopter tour of staten island and the rockaways this afternoon. >> brown: and the president offered some additional help today, appointing his housing and urban affairs secretary, shaun donovan to coordinate the long-term rebuilding efforts in new york and new jersey. again, the major developments o
in the world. >> but one of the reasons that there is so much energy in the u.s. is because we embrace individuals in this country in a way that isn't always done throughout the world. so when you look at something like silicon valley is a great-- where amazon is in seattle but silicon valley is kind of the heart of the internet tech. >> rose: i think of them often as one, silicon valley and seattle. >> you look at silicon valley and it's a place where entrepreneurs are celebrated. where somebody with a good idea can quickly raise money and get started. you go to a lot of other places in the world and the idea of celebrating the entrepreneur, celebrating the individual with an idea, that kind of, you know, the two kids in the garage or the-- or in their dorm room, this is one of the best places in the world for that and that's a cultural thing that is very persistent. >> that is why they all beat a path to silicon valley when they come to america. >> if you are worried about the issue that you brought up, there's a very simple solution which is we do something which from a policy point
will be ready to double its production of weapons-grade enriched uranium. the international atomic energy agency reported the finding today. it means tehran could be within three months of obtaining enough uranium for a nuclear warhead. iran has insisted it has no plans to make nuclear weapons, but it refuses to stop its enrichment program. former cia director david petraeus told lawmakers today it was clear early on that terrorists attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. petraeus answered questions behind closed doors one week after he admitted having an affair and resigned. republican congressman peter king of new york said the general's account differed from what he said right after the attack, when the administration was blaming a muslim protest. >> the testimony today was that from the start he told us it was a terrorist attack, a terrorist-involved from the start. i told him my questions have a very different recollection. the impression we were giving was the overwhelming amount of evidence was that it was arose out of a span takenuous demonstration and was not a terrorist attack.
